  • Rowan University requires all students to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Students must submit their vaccination to the wellness center at: 
  • You may opt out of the vaccination requirement only for medical or religious reasons. To opt out, you will be required to complete the COVID-19 Vaccine Declination Form.
  • Students who do submit a record of vaccination against COVID-19 or an approved Covid-19 Vaccine Declination Form must submit to a weekly Covid testing requirement.
  • The Wellness Center MUST have your vaccination or declination records prior to move-in. Resident students who have not submitted their vaccination record or completed the declination approval process will NOT be permitted to check into their on campus housing.

Meningitis Vaccination Compliance

For the safety of Rowan University Students an up-to-date meningitis immunization is required of ALL students prior to moving into campus residence halls.  Your immunization and health records are due on July 15th (December 15th for Spring admission).  By law, students will not be issued a key or card access on move-in day if the records of the Rowan University Wellness Center indicate you have not submitted proper documentation of vaccination. You will be allowed to transfer your belongings into your assigned room, but will not be allowed to reside in university housing until you have satisfied the meningitis vaccination requirement. The Wellness Center will be open during normal business hours Monday thru Friday to submit documentation and receive proof of meningitis clearance. Due to Health Information Privacy restrictions, the Residential Learning and University Housing Office cannot accept medical records prior to or on move-in weekend, so please submit any health records directly to the following location:

The Wellness Center at Winans Hall is located at 201 Mullica Hill Road Glassboro, NJ 08028-1701
